Do you think teachers should be allowed to dress more loosely?

The current dress code for female teachers is VERY restrictive. Almost oppressive. Its as if they consider comfortable to be sexually provocative

Superb Opinion

  • You're not being oppressed, you choose to pursue that job, you applied, you interviewed, and you continue to work there because you want to. You never had to take that position and you can leave at any time. So cut the bullshit. You're an authority figure and a role model. You should dress professional so that the kids know you have your shit together, that your organized, and you're ready to do your job. They should be able to see that you a clean and professionally dressed like an adult, so they know when they grow up and graduate from school, what to expect when they go to apply for a job.

  • I think more information is required. What, about the current dress code, is oppressive? What is the new standard you are proposing be adopted?


    We had a teacher back in my high-school who was an absolute dream. She absolutely dressed like the ‘sexy school teacher’ one would expect if they requested one from Central Casting. Hells, pencil skirts, white blouse of thin material, glasses and even her hair pulled up with a pencil shoved in it. We boys couldn’t even think straight. Now, with hindsight, I realize she knew EXACTLY what she was doing.

  • What grades?

  • I can't answer unless you post photos to illustrate your point. What is considered provocative by some is considered Victorian by others.

  • No because loosely is very hard to have as a standard, also it is far to open to interpretation. Sensible clothing in line with that schools standards is what is required. You cannot very well have specific uniform standards for kids uniforms and then let those who enforce those standards dressing loosely.

  • If teachers were allowed to dress more loosely I think more students would pay attention in class.

  • Teachers aren't meant to be objects of desire for school children. They are fantasised about by children as it is, if you had a teacher all dressed out in latex, what would you think would happen?

  • I am ignorant of the dress code. I think the teacher functions as a role model, and their clothes should reflect that. How do you want your students to dress when they grow up? I would say comfort is great, and it's also great if you look presentable.

  • It's not that strict over here, we had a head teacher who clearly wore push up bra with her already decent sized breasts and unbutton blouse to see a bit of the top and she always wore a skirt as well.
    She was nice, married and seemed happy. Never tried anything and tutored me quite a bit so her been nice to look at wasn't a problem.

  • LOL, one of my female teaching colleagues always wore jeans and a T-shirt and no one had a problem with it. Keep in mind that schools usually have dress codes- how is a teacher going to enforce that when she is herself dressed provocatively?

  • They need to dress professionally

  • Considering many of the "outfits" female teachers where are way to low cut no I don't think they should allowed to dress more "comfortably" I went to high-school and had a few younger female teachers that wore low cut shirts showing off there breasts or button up shirts with a couple buttons not done. Not okay.
